Off the Shelf Cast and Crew

Kghia Gherardi – co-host, producer and book geek

Kghia Gherardi is an Aquarius, but her typist is a Gemini. One is a water sign, the other air, so the result is a lot of steam.

Kghia is co-founder of Bookstacks, a volunteer at the Caledon Library, and she has been actively creating online reader communities for a decade.


Simeon Beresford

Simeon Beresford – co-host, producer and confirmed reader

Simeon Beresford is younger and fitter than his typist. However he is also less intelligent, so their rivalry remains on the whole friendly.

Simeon is co-founder of Bookstacks, manager of Awen, and a wicked quiz master.

Gabrielle Riel

Gabrielle Riel

Gabrielle Riel – technical director and founder of Radio Riel
